Hotel Gotham to be 'the sexiest' in Europe
The Bespoke Hotel Group has announced that it is planning to open the 60-bedroom Gotham Hotel in Manchester, which Chairman Robin Sheppard has dubbed "the sexiest hotel in Europe".
The new venue, which used to be the old headquarters for the Midland Bank and was designed by architect Sir Edward Lutyens, will be situated on King Street. The Marshall Construction Group will at present convert the site into a luxury hotel with 60 bedrooms, a personal members' bar, roof garden plus a restaurant. There will also be a chain of luxurious suites that will boast their own private internal garden.
Mr Sheppard said: “Hotel Gotham guarantees to be a enjoyable, witty destination and a little bit naughty. We wish for it to be real sexiest hotel in Europe. Working in the midst of the skills of the Marshall Construction Group team as our partners, we anticipate to unlock the character of this majestic building and present it to the Manchester public as a hotel they can be truly proud of."
It is nearly 80 years since Mr Lutyens designed 100 King Street. The builder is famous for a progression of other buildings and tombstones, such as Greywalls hotel in East Lothian. Not simply will this development generate a series of construction jobs for the local area, but it is expected that hospitality employment will be boosted once the hotel finally opens its doors.
Simon Marshall, M.D. of the Marshall Construction Group, added that the development group is also very grateful to Manchester's Planning Authority, which is apparently very enthusiastic towards the scheme.
According to Workers Direct report construction on the site will start in March 2014. Gotham Hotel will open after that to the general public in spring 2015.
